One of the joys of working in the Human Resources profession is that you get to work alongside business owners, leaders, managers and staff and develop and test principles to see if they can be successfully applied across a wide range of settings.
I recently recalled a chat that I had with a friend that I met around 12 years ago whilst living and working in London. The friend was playing a high grade of Rugby Union at the time, incidentally a sport that I don’t follow nor profess to know anything about, and was explaining to me the role of pods as an attacking tactic.
So at the time I did a bit more research and found a nice, neat definition of what he was talking about “A group of players who will attack the same space together”. Nice.
What I took from this was that rather than evenly disperse all your team evenly across the field, at times it was more effective to have several specialists working together in close proximity attacking the same target.
Whether it be for the purposes of delivering a project, improving team performance or successfully implementing a change we have found that concentrating specialists whether they be technical or leadership this has been an effective tactic for improving results.
Some of the main benefits are:
Qui autem dolore quia dolorem blanditiis quos omnis. Hic quasi tempore. Ut et blanditiis expedita necessitatibus dolores quae voluptatem. Rerum saepe eos voluptatem maxime id rerum.
There are of course a number of variables to affect the level of success that can be achieved such as competency, personality types, individual motivations, technology, market forces and relative size of business.
Overall though our experience has shown that it is often more effective to have your most talented employees concentrated on a particular area of your business that having them in an even spread working disparately across an organisation.
Do you have principles that you have taken from outside your business to improve results?
